We’re a globally-minded company that believes diverse perspectives lead to innovative solutions
We source, produce, manufacture and market our products all over the world, and our expansive, international operations are reflected in the people we employ. We thrive on the different ethnic, cultural, religious, gender and age backgrounds of our employees – we want our products to be for all people, created by a diverse workforce.
Achieving true diversity and equality as a company means having the systems in place to make our ambitions a reality. It’s an ongoing journey but we’re proud of our progress to date. For example, our 2020 target for 40% of our workforce to be female was already almost reached by the end of 2016 (38.3%).
With almost 10,665 employees serving roughly 160 countries, doing business with other companies in other countries, with different cultures and customs, it’s vital that we have a common basis from which to work. This is where our Code of Conduct comes in: it is one of the most important elements of our Group-wide compliance program and has been key to enabling us to build our positive reputation with all the different people and businesses we work with.
We have also signed the Women´s Empowerment Principles. With this move, We want to send a clear signal to our global organization that we stand for gender equality in our workplace.
